Here's my short generalisation ....

Unless the plastic surgery is a medical requirement, you are trying to alter your "insides" by playing with your "outsides". Won't work.

If you feel this need, I suggest you review your "insides" with someone, before taking another step.

Remember that in the history of the entire world, there has never been another you, and there never will be. God made you uniquely you and for you to reject that and say 'I'm not good enough for me' is not OK

Hey there,

you need to have confidence in yourself. though it may not be easy,thats part of life. its about going through the experience and trying to make the best out of your life with what you've got.

I, myself, don't have loads of confidence in my looks but i have confidence in my personality and my inner self and i think that is more important. if you have friends that only wanna be your friends for your looks then they are not worth it and i'm sure your friends aren't like that.

and if you are worried about guys and such, though you may not be the center of attraction but trust me, somewhere around, there will always be someone for you just that you havent noticed that person yet.

In life, nothing is fair and we have to deal with it but if you think positively and believe in yourself, and work hard towards a positive goal, i'm sure it will all work out.

hope things work out for you. take care k. :)

Its all in you head, as to small boobs I can guarantee there will be a least a 100 guys on this forum who would happily nuzzle up to them. In fact there is a whole "glamour " industry catering for men who like petite boobed women. go on just google it.

Can you imagine how depressed you will be when your future hubby discovers that you are all fake and your children will look nothing like you.

Put it this way you know those Japanese restaurants with those plastic food on display, what would you prefer on the table when you come home for dinner, a huge pile of plastic food or a single small helping of real Ramen?

for what it's worth... boob surgery is rarely a ONE TIME affair. you usually have to go back to have it "adjusted" and then they need replacing every so often.

having said that, some people DO benefit from having bigger boobs but it's always at a price... are you willing to pay that price? (and i ain't just talking about money here)

Suddenly out of the blue you are recommending this website. What a delightful way of spamming on your first post.
You have to try harder.

Cost is a big factor as yes I don't want to spend all my money on it. I know there are cheaper places to have it done but I am worried that the places may not do a good job.

Dear Broke and Worried,

If you're doing plastic surgery because you're depressed, you should not consider Plastic surgery at this point of your life. Because Plastic surgery is not going to make you feel better for your university & family. :)

If you want to go for surgery in thailand under proper & skillful surgeons, i can give u advise; but u should be sure that you're emotionally stable.

I agree with this opinion. Plastic surgery isnt beauty care like salon or nail care. I m sure that you will make the best decision whatever you do. Furthermore, cost is important for us but the more important is the result especially if doing on my face and body. You need to research more information careufully.

I know what you mean. But please note that things like surgery should only be done when you are doing in a good, healthy frame of mind. I wouldnt recommend undergoing surgery when you are in depressed state because your frame of mind is not right. You need to fix that insecurity and self discontentment within first. Otherwise you will find that surgery is just not enough and there's always something else to fix.

Why not give yourself a time frame to think through it carefully, like 2 more years of careful contemplation. You do know, that breast implants do not last forever and have to be changed every 8-10 years. And even more so if there are complications in between.

I have seen photos of Dr. Wu's operations on nose. Frankly the people dont look much better and I wouldnt give them a 2nd glance even after the operation.

I am an insecure person and prone to depression myself. It is during those times I feel that my breasts are too small and I'm ugly and have bad skin etc etc. You know what, it's all really in the mind.

I just came back from a holiday in europe. It's amazing how you see people of all shapes and sizes carry themselves with such confidence. They are not afraid to bare their bodies even though they are fat, skinny, flat chested etc. I came back feeling so much more confident about myself and my looks.

i haven't said this before but if you need anyone to talk to or write to, anonymously you can email me at mayaray99AThotmailDOTcom
very well said.

surgery is no substitite for self respect and self belief. Be confident of yourself as you are.
